TIM KUPSICK/Casper Star-Tribune Casper Police Officer Dan Dundas, left, and Casper Fire-EMS firefighter Craig Kidder will each receive awards this weekend for their roles in rescuing a 14-year-old girl from the North Platte River on May 24. The rescue happened near the F Street bridge in North Casper, Wyo.

Earlier this year, on the day a 14-year-old girl jumped from a Casper bridge into the North Platte River, Dan Dundas wasn’t on patrol. And Craig Kidder was off duty.

Dundas, a police officer, was working with the city’s Weed and Seed program in north Casper. His job entailed, among other things, getting into the community, meeting people, identifying problems.

Kidder, a firefighter, was finishing coaching a Little League baseball team. He left practice driving to his 8-year-old son’s last soccer game of the season.
